Hello, developers.

Look at your app. Now back to me. Now back at your app. Now back to me.

Sadly, your app wasn't written by me. But if you used appstats, your app could be fast like mine.

Look down. Back up. Where are you? In your admin console, with the app your app could run like. What's in your hand? Back to me. It's a link from that site you love. Look again. Your site is now doing 20QPS.

Anything is possible when your app runs on App Engine and not PHP. I'm on a Python.

Anyone know a good voice actor?

Google I/O playlist, day 1: Appstats

With the full videos of the App Engine sessions at I/O now released, those who missed I/O, or, like me, didn't have time to catch all the sessions can now catch up on what they missed out on. The list is quite intimidating, though - there's a lot of content there, and most of us have a limited amount of time to spend watching each day.

With that in mind, over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be posting session videos, one or two each day, in an order that's hopefully useful and makes sense to people. I'll also explicitly note who'll find each video of interest, and what other videos, if any, you should watch first.

First in the lineup is Guido's Appstats talk. This talk will be of interest to both Python and App Engine developers, at all levels of skill. There's some Python-specific code in the talk, but it mostly applies to both languages.

What's that, you say? You already know about appstats? Even if you do, there's almost certainly something you didn't know in Guido's talk. If you're already familiar ...
